Felix getting strokes from Grandma.
Felix: You think you are going to give me three medicines and ointment three times a day? I don’t think so (claws come out)…
Felix came through his surgery fine on Friday and the Vet said this morning (Saturday) that he was eating and peeing and seemed to be adjusting well to his uh, “newly constructed parts”. And that we should be able to pick him up tomorrow morning.
In the meantime, here is a pic of Snickers tonight in his new hammock. He has had it in his cage for a month and just tonight finally got in it and stretched out. LOL.
This is Andrew’s Mom, just wanted to update everyone on Felix.
He has been in the Hospital since Monday because he had a urinary tract blockage. Since then every time they take the catheter out he swells up with inflammation. So at this point its Thursday night and my only options are surgery in the a.m. or go up there tonight and put him to sleep. Since I CANNOT do the later, he is having surgery in the a.m. This surgery will make him pee like a girl and thus eliminate the problem area I guess. Which the vet says even though Felix is old this is a very common surgery and he has just as good a chance at doing well as any other cat.
This is the only option for me because There is just NO WAY I can go up to the Hospital tonight and send him off to the bridge knowing there was something I could have done to keep him with me and I didn’t do it. I wish I was an Animal Communicator so Felix could tell me what HE wanted. I can only hope he wants to hang around with us for awhile longer. He was eating this morning, which thrilled everyone at the Hospital according to the Vet.
Thanks for listening everyone! I will keep you posted! Andrew had a blast with Cadbury on Monday.
Hi Fur Friends! Cadbury made it to OHIO! He is here chillin with me! We are currently munching on Kale and Parsley and watching the silly Barkers run around the warren.
I told Cadbury Mom will give us a bedtime snack of APPLE SLICES and he can’t wait!
But FELIX the Cat is in the Vet Hospital tonight and Mom is furry stressed out.
He had a “urethral blockage”, his bladder was blocked and he couldn’t use the litter box! Poor Felix.
Now he is at the Hospital and has to stay there for a couple of days with a catheter and he has a silly cone on his head!
Please say PURRAYERs for Felix. Mom is furry worried. He is a senior kitty even though Mom has only had him for 1 and 1/2 years.
OOOH here comes our apple slices! Comon’ Cadbury!
Hello fur friends!
Just wanted to let you know I am doing furry much better, Mom says I am pretty much back to eating and pooping with my usual Gusto. Thank you to all my fur friends for checking in on me!
We had some furry nice weather here at the warren this weekend. Efurryone found some SUN.
Babii and Felix by the back door…
Sonny out on the deck…
But this morning (Tuesday) we have this!
Hello Fur Friends! Things were stressful in the House of Andrewbun this week..
First off, I finally got my new condo that Mom has been promising me forever. Mom got it from Leith Petwerks, and it even had carpet on the second floor bedroom!
Well Mom says this is where the trouble started. I of course started eating my new carpet. For some reason this made Mom pull all my carpet out?!
Then a couple days later she really started freaking out, saying I am not eating enough, my poots are too small, and I am not drinking my water! She said I must have a carpet ball or a hair ball, cuz I am shedding some bun fur.
Next thing I know, I am getting shoved in a pink, yes, (Babii Barker the vicious Chihuahua’s ) pink prison box, and off to the VET I GO! (Thumping all the way I might add). I am sure all my fur friends KNOW the horrible indignities I suffered when I got there….
Andrewbun’s Mom: Thursday night the Vet gave Andrew sub q fluids, metacam and medicine to jump start his GI tract.
Its now Friday night and he does seem to be improving. There are more poots and so far today he has eaten two piece of romaine, a piece of kale, two pieces of apple, half of a baby carrot and some hay.
Now if he will just start drinking his water again. If not I will force water via the critical care/syringe.
Any other ideas anyone?
